October in Aiken and the Movie Night that wasn't

Autumn is my favorite season for many reasons. I love the cool, fresh air. I love that the humidity vanishes. I love the CLOTHES. And I  love the colors. Unfortunately, Aiken doesn't exactly embrace the whole...beautiful fall foliage concept.

This is what fall in Aiken looks like on an early October afternoon -

And this is what snuggling on the ground with your fiance looks like -

Last night, I wanted to see a movie with Feefaroni. It took me about 3 hours to decide which one I wanted to see (especially because Lion King 3D was one of the choices and I just LOVE Mufasa. And Pumba). I eventually narrowed it down to either 50/50 or Moneyball - mainly because I knew the Lion King would leave me in tears like it always does and I wasn't in the mood to spend my Wednesday evening weeping like a child. 

So (drumroll) I landed on 50/50. Mike hadn't heard of either movies (because he actually lives under a rock) and therefore had ZERO helpful input. Moneyball seemed just a little bit TOO heavy, and when you couple that with my complete lack of baseball savvy, the flick about a young man with cancer seemed like the obvious choice. Also, Seth Rogan and Joseph Gordon-Levitt are two of my favorite off-beat actors and I REALLY sort of hate Brad Pitt ever since he transitioned from Jen to Angie.

My point is, on Day 2 of my 334561164th diet, I wanted nothing more than to eat my weight in popcorn while simultaneously crying & laughing.

Then I got home from work and Mike and I got into an argument about something. So naturally, instead of going to the movie, I moped around the house, ate some grilled chicken and veggies, and refused to talk about it like an adult. I also made some pretty delicious no-bake cookies with butterscotch pieces. We're not fighting anymore.


  1. I really want to see 50/50.... damn you and the Feef fighting, I need your review. Clearly, it's all about me and not your relationship. You should remind him that next time you squabble. ;)

  2. i heard 50/50 was a great movie! but i am still a little partial to brad pitts hotness. i just don't recommend contagion. too real.

    sorry about the fighting but you guys look PRETTY cozy on the ground in aiken. great pictures!

  3. My favorite is the second picture!

  4. Wow. Fall looks beautiful so close to the FL line means fall is about a week, then it's hot, then it's cold for a few weeks...then spring...then summer. Haha. You guys are so cute. I love your little "about me".
